A password-protected directory is a folder that cannot be accessed unless the right login credentials are offered. This may be a whole site or just one page which is in a subfolder. If you try to open such a directory, you shall see an Internet browser pop-up in which you have to type in a username and a password. In case you type in the appropriate ones, you'll be able to continue browsing the content without the need to do anything else. In case the login details are not correct, however, you shall see a message that you are not allowed to see the content. If this feature is active, you will not be able to open a file even though you may have a direct link. The function is incredibly practical if you want to limit the access to some content or if you are developing an Internet site and you don't want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.

Password Protected Directories in Cloud Hosting

When you use any of our cloud hosting packages, you shall be able to set up password-protected areas easily even if you don't have any experience with this kind of matters. We have integrated an extremely easy-to-use point-and-click tool within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts, so you shall be able to secure any folder within merely seconds. You'll only have to pick a domain or a subdomain and the exact folder that has to be protected (the main one or a subfolder), and then to type the username and password which will be used to access the folder in question in the future. Any protected folder will have a padlock icon within the File Manager section, so you shall be able to see immediately what content is secured and what's not. When necessary, you can make a number of sets of login details for the exact same folder.

Password Protected Directories in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to set up password protection for any content which you have in your semi-dedicated server account. We have added an easy-to-use tool to the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel through which you shall be able to activate the feature with a few mouse clicks and without any troubles, even if you're not quite tech-savvy. You'll only have to pick the hostname (domain or subdomain), the particular folder which must be protected (the primary folder or a subfolder) plus the login name and password. The protection will take effect instantaneously, so if you attempt to open the password-protected URL inside your web browser, you'll have to input the newly created login credentials before you proceed. You'll also be able to give different usernames for the exact same folder to a number of individuals, so you will not need to share the same login credentials with everyone. Any password-protected folder will have a little padlock icon in the File Manager section, so you will be able to recognize this kind of folders in no time.
